Cancer of the skin is by far the most common of all cancers with melanoma being the cause of the majority of skin cancer deaths. The incidence of melanoma continues to increase and it has become one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States, especially among young adult women ages 20-39. This year, an estimated 73,000 melanomas will be diagnosed in the U.S.
Dr. Charles Brandon Mitchell and Dr. Frank Glass hold a weekly melanoma and pigmented lesion clinic to provide ongoing surveillance of patients with a personal history of melanoma. In addition, we also see patients at elevated risk of melanoma including those with a personal history of dysplastic nevi (atypical moles) or a family history of melanoma. For patients with numerous dysplastic nevi, we utilize total body photography to assess for new or changing lesions.
At The GW Medical Faculty Associates, we take a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of melanoma.
Our team includes:
- Plastic Surgery
- Medical Oncology
- Genetic Counseling
